Joseph-Maurice Ravel (1875 - 1937) was a French composer known especially for his melodies, orchestral and instrumental textures and effects. Much of his piano music, chamber music, vocal music and orchestral music has entered the standard concert repertoire.
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791) was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. Mozart is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and many of his works are part of the standard concert repertoire.
Bach, Johann Sebastian
This classic air by Bach is a popular selection for both weddings and concerts.
Handel, George Frideric
This famous piece is part of Handel's Water Music suite. It makes a wonderful processional.
The original piece is part of Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068, written for his patron Prince Leopold sometime between the years 1717 and 1723. The air is usually played slowly and freely, and features an intertwining harmony and melody. The title comes from violinist August Wilhelmj's late 19th century arrangement of the piece for violin and piano. By transposing the key of the piece from its original D major to C major, Wilhelmj was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.
The Water Music is a collection of orchestral movements, often considered as three suites, composed by George Frideric Handel. It premiered in the summer of 1717 when King George I requested a concert on the River Thames. The concert was performed by 50 musicians that joined King George I on his barge. King George I was said to have loved it so much that he ordered the exhausted musicians to play the suites three times on the trip.
Beethoven, Ludwig van
Allegretto - movement II from the Moonlight sonata (Op. 27, No. 2, 1801) for piano solo. The original key is Db major.

The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, are a set of 30 variations for harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach. First published in 1741 as the fourth in a series Bach called Clavier-Ubung, "Keyboard Practice", the work is considered to be one of the most important examples of variation form. It is named after Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who may have been the first performer. The original key is G major.
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750) was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose ecclesiastical and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity.
It's hard to imagine something more exquisite than Bach's Prelude No. 1, yet this is what Charles Gounod achieved when he composed an Ave Maria using the prelude as his foundation. Truly remarkable...
Ellens dritter Gesang (Ellens Gesang III, D839, Op 52 no 6, 1825), Ellen's third song in English, composed by Franz Schubert in 1825, is one of Schubert's most popular works, although some misconceptions exist regarding its provenance. Franz Schubert (1797 - 1828) was an Austrian composer. He is particularly noted for his original melodic and harmonic writing.
Bach, Johann Sebastian, Gounod, Charles
Ave Maria is a popular and much recorded melody. It was composed by Charles Gounod (1818 - 93) in 1859 during the Romantic era, based on the harmony and texture of J. S. Bach's Prelude No.1 in C Major from Well-Tempered Clavier Book I (BWV 846). It is a setting of the standard Latin Ave Maria text.
I mostly play this piece at weddings, and since it is often several weeks or months between performances, I like to use this 'simplified' arrangement because I can get it under my fingers again quickly. I like the resonance of the drop D tuning, however for those weddings when it is not convenient to tune down, I use an arrangement in E major, also published on this site.
